5 Tips for Choosing a Commercial Bathroom Style

June 1, 2021

Designing your commercial bathroom may not seem like a priority, but you’d be surprised by the importance of a well-designed, clean bathroom for patrons and employees. There are several ways to create a pleasant and enjoyable experience for everyone in your retail, commercial, or industrial facility. Review these five tips for choosing a commercial bathroom style before making your final decision.

Design tips for your commercial bathroom

Tip #1: Maximize Space

Did you know you can create the illusion of a larger bathroom with a few simple design tricks? Use mirrors throughout the bathroom to make the bathroom look bigger than it actually is. Mirrors amplify spaces without using much space themselves. Additionally, occupants can check their appearance throughout the bathroom.

Tip #2: Use Softs Colors and Recessed Lighting

Most commercial bathrooms are painted a bland white and utilize harsh fluorescent lighting. Not only is standard white paint bland, but it lacks character and tends to make bathrooms feel inhospitable. You can switch it up by painting your bathroom with softer colors and utilizing softer lighting. Doing so will make the bathroom feel more inviting. 

Tip #3: Keep Privacy in Mind

One of the most important features of a commercial bathroom is privacy. Give patrons and employees the privacy they deserve by utilizing materials that eliminate sightlines and design flaws. For example, when choosing stalls, choose frames that decrease the exterior visuals. 

Tip #4: Choose Durability

You may find bathroom fixtures that look nice but won’t withstand the amount of foot traffic your commercial bathroom sees. During the bathroom design process, be sure to choose fixtures that not only look good but that are durable. Durable fixtures may not be the cheapest option, but they’re certainly worth the investment.

Tip #5: Keep it Clean

Choose bathroom designs that are easy to clean and have an overall clean appearance. Look for materials that are low-maintenance and easy to clean. Doing so will make bathroom cleanups quick, easy, and efficient. Acrylic is a common, easy-to-clean material that can be utilized throughout the bathroom.
